Microsoft's Metro design has been spreading far and wide across the company's products and services in recent months. With Windows 8, Xbox, and even a future version of Hotmail adopting the Metro look, Microsoft is now testing a similar design for its homepage. The software giant has launched a preview page of its new design, with a feedback option for visitors.

Overall, the design appears to cater for touch and high-resolution monitors more than the existing one, and includes large text with a focus on imagery. The design is currently in preview mode, but judging by how quickly the firm is pushing its Metro design we'd expect to see this rollout soon.
